Process Flow

The data flow has the following steps:

  1. A supplicant (mobile device/laptop/desktop) tries to associate with the Meraki Access Point (AP).
  2. The Meraki AP contacts the Okta RADIUS agent with the user's identity
  3. The Okta RADIUS agent requests the start of the EAP-TTLS conversation, which is forwarded to the supplicant
  4. A TLS channel is established between the supplicant and the Okta RADIUS agent.
    Within the tunnel, the supplicant sends the configured username and password to the Okta RADIUS agent.
  5. The Okta RADIUS agent sends authentication information to the Okta tenant.
  6. The Okta tenant sends the authentication response back to the Okta RADIUS agent.
  7. The Okta RADIUS agent sends an Accept or Reject message to the Meraki AP.
  8. The Meraki AP accepts or rejects the terminal access request.
